Graphene happened to be the first two dimensional material to be isolated, but there's many more. Silicene which replaces carbon with silicon, boron nitride and molybdenum disulfide monolayers are all also examples of 2d materials. Even then 2d materials are not the only examples of nanotech, there's plenty of materials that have been made into nanoparticles.
